Sonic Planet Studio

Background:

Hello, glad you made it this far. My name is Rob Eldridge. Pittsburgh, PA has been my hometown for the past 20 years.  I cherish the time I’ve had in the Steel City but I’ll always be a Vermonter at heart.  I was born and raised in a small town called Swanton.  Swanton is 45 miles south of Montreal, Quebec and 35 miles north of Burlington, VT.  I grew up listening to some of the best players out there, from Phish to Nobby Reed.

Making and listening to music is my passion. I was immersed in music from an early age.  My grandmother was an accomplished pianist and my grandfather was an opera singer. (hear a clip here) My dad is an artist and was an avid collector of vinyl which I’ve fortunately inherited. I navigated my way around sounds and vintage equipment from an early age.  My exposure to music has been broad and I enjoy most all sounds that contain melodic sensibility. I’ve shared the stage with some incredible musicians and partnered with some great songwriters during my journey.
